. >> this story about a former governor a former chief of staff to a former president john sununu has some amazing things to say about the president. >> what people saw last night we saw a president that revealed his incompetence, how lazy and detached he is and he has absolutely no idea how serious the problems of america is. >> he called the president lazy and detached. andrea mitchell tried to give him a way out. >> did you really mean to call barack obama, the president of the united states, lazy? >> yes. i think you saw him admit it the night before when he delivered the pizzas, he said they are making me do this work. he didn't want to prepare for this debate. >> john sununu would not take back calling the president of the united states lazy. this man is republican worked for george w. bush, ronald reagan was in the white house ronald reagan of take naps during the middle of the day fame, he was president of the united states while john sununu was governor and he probably never would have said of ronald reagan that he is lazy. >> that's a really really good po

debate by mr. romney no doubt has been followed by a performance by governor john sununu where he felt he had to smear the president with some despicable words this afternoon when he was interviewed by my colleague andrea mitchell. just listen to this. >> what people saw last night i think was a president that revealed his incompetence, how lazy and detached he is. >> governor, i want to give you a chance to maybe take it back. did you really mean to call barack obama, the president of the united states, lazy? >> yes. i think you saw him admit it the night before when he delivered the pizzas. he said, you know, they're making me do this work. he didn't want to prepare for this debate. he's lazy and disengaged. >> now, professor peterson, we have to be absolutely clear and truthful, john sununu is an adviser to mitt romney. >> yes, he is. >> aside from the fact he appears to be an over perspiring hyperventilating mass of bitterness, the president is now nothing more than a lazy feckless pizza poi, boy, is tha right? >> hopefully romney will distance himself from these comments. let's look

that is not enough. >> stephanie: oh, okay. because john sununu said he is lazy and stupid. romney walked back his own tax plan telling president obama and the american people he would not support a plan that cut taxes on the wealthy and raise taxes on the middle class -- that is mathematically impossible. as i read the actual -- like thing romney said, he basically just said huh-uh because i say so. >> wow. >> stephanie: he said so there's no economist that says the plan adds $5 trillion if i say it won't.
